Having three little ones with a very active lifestyle keeps me consistently on my toes and I’m ALWAYS cleaning. One thing that I do not suggest is carpet (especially light colored carpet) in high traffic areas of your home, but we moved in to a place that already had carpet installed so it was something we had to deal with. Even with a “stain resistant” carpet – the stains did not clean up as easily as it warranted and after years of spills, no matter what we did and how well we cleaned, the high traffic areas in our home were beyond cleaning despair – until now.
Upkeep of light colored carpet when you have little ones in the house is not necessarily difficult, but definitely a challenge and I found that my husband and I spent a lot of money on carpet cleaning products in the past that cleaned very small sections without issue but the follow up and keep up of it began to be expensive. At one point – we even discussed ripping the entire carpet out – but financially it wasn’t feasible. Recently my husband and I tested the Resolve Easy Clean Pro Kit that came with the Carpet Cleaner Gadget and a Foam Refill. The set retails at most stores like Walmart & Target for about $20 and in some cases cheaper and the replacement foam can retail for about $15.00 if purchased separately. I’ll be honest in saying that we really weren’t sure that the cleaner would work and I was not easily a believer.
Check out my video below that outlines putting together the unit and shows you how easy it is to work. You can also click here to watch directly on YouTube.
As you can see from the image below – our carpet really took a beating over the last few years. With spills from juice, milk, liquid like foods, snacks – you name it, it has definitely graced these floors. My husband and I have used various cleaning products prior to Resolve and only a few stains were removed, usually not enough to make a difference, especially in our very high traffic areas. With just one use of the Resolve Easy Clean Pro and Carpet Spray we were able to see a HUGE and very noticeable difference in how our carpet looked.
As you seen in the video, assembly of the cleaning gadget was VERY simple and took me just a minute or two to put together. While there was a slight smell from the foam, it was not as strong as other carpet cleaning products we have used in the past and drying time was faster than we had expected. The texture and feel of the carpet didn’t change as other products have done before as well – some had left our carpet very hard and crunchy like… it felt uncomfortable on the feet. So I’m super happy that I didn’t feel like I was walking on porcupines after cleaning. And, I do love that my carpet did not change in tone or discolor after use and drying.
The instructions were super easy to follow:
- Assemble the unit
- Insert the Resolve High Traffic Carpet Cleaner Foam Canister
- Dispense the foam by pressing the trigger at the top of the Unit
- Brush the carpet – using the unit and brushing the foam to remove the grime
- After carpet has dried – vacuum and done
A few tidbits about the product:
- New ergonomic handle for easy grip and extra comfort
- No more scrubbing on your hands and knees (woohoo – love this one)
- Up to 50 sq. feet area coverage per can (I think this is awesome since we are able to cover a large amount before we need to purchase a refill)
- Made for High Traffic Areas of the Home – stair landings, corridors, entry ways, small area rugs
- New and Improved – 100% more dirt fighting power
Con – I do have one thing I wish I could be changed and it is the length of the handle. I’m not very tall – just 5’6″ but I feel like I’m bending over a bit while brushing the carpet so you can certainly understand how my husband feels since he is 6 feet tall. I wish there was just a few more inches added to the handle to accommodate our height. It is not necessarily uncomfortable but it could be a little easier to brush with the handle if it could extend just a little more.
Overall – Having not used a unit like this before, I am very impressed with how well it worked for us. My husband and I have already treated a good 80% of our living room carpet and I feel like it surely worked well after just one treatment of each area. We will continue to use this product until we have put it to so much use that it doesn’t want to work anymore. It’s affordable and offers you an awesome solution over spending a lot of money on renting or buying heavy duty equipment to clean your carpets. I’m definitely impressed with ease of use, affordability and availability of the Resolve Easy Clean Pro Carpet Cleaner.
So are you looking for a fairly easy way to clean your carpet? Will you be looking into the Resolve Easy Clean Pro to take care of your carpet cleaning needs? If so – I would love to hear your thoughts on it if you end up buying it or if you have tried it already.
